    Last year he had another year left on his deal. This year, he'll be on an expiring deal.

    Stumbled upon this article on the SABR awards nominations. A good read on what could have been a turning point in stadium architecture. Imagine that, Jerry Reinsdorf chose poorly.

    The White Sox ballpark in Chicago that never was and could have changed history

    https://www.cbssports.com/mlb/news/...hat-never-was-and-could-have-changed-history/

    Cliffs, an architect wanted to take parks back to the days of Wrigley, Fenway, Yankee stadium where they were integrated into the neighborhood. Instead White Sox brought suburban model to the city and did more harm to the neighborhood.

    that White Sox article was a great read

    the line about Fenway and Wrigley being constrained hit on why I love urban colleges so much. You feel like you're in a little sanctuary away from the buzz of the city that is just steps away

    Tell those two guys up top to sign a damn contract. The rest of the guys will get signed once those two finalize a deal.

    I'm not sympathetic to either side. The players have absolutely no right to Bitch. No pro athlete does. No one who makes more money then god gets to bitch.

    I guess I don't understand being sympathetic to either side. Do the owners have more than enough money? Yeah, no shit, but the players are more than fairly compensated for what they do, too.

    I'm all for employee of every company getting their fair share. If that's the gas station attendant running a multi-million dollar store for $8 an hour or a baseball player making a couple million while the owner makes billions. I think owners of all businesses should share the profits they make off the work of their employees.

    Yeah, I'm ok with saying professional athletes make plenty of money.

    There isn't even a comparison to be made between athletes and people working menial day jobs.

    That's a whole different story. Most minor leaguers are living off what many on here wouldn't consider liveable wages.

    Sure there is. All employees are equal to an equal share of the revenue they produce. MLB players producing billions of revenue doesn't mean they shouldn't get a fair cut of what they produce.

    well yeah but there is a massive difference in offering that kind of deal to a 32 year old through his 42 year old season and giving it to a 26 year old through his 36 year old season

    If the money is guaranteed, no one should get that many years. Too much can happen in ten years that could effect a players performance.

    What's enough? Who gets to decide this?

    If athletes are only allowed to make X amount of dollars before they need to "shut up", what about owners? Where should they be drawing the line? Who gets to decide when people aren't allowed to ask for any more money? Does this apply to your job? Your CEO?

    Fuck off, athletes drive billions in profits for owners, networks, etc, they ought to be getting a LOT if there was any actual justice in the balance. Most of the owners did nothing to build to league and revenue, just bought in and cash out
